Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Artist: Addison Road
Album: Stories
Release Date: 6/22/10
Label: INO Records

It's a very surprising thing when I stumble across a band like Addison Road that have a good chance in making it in the CCM market, while still maintaining an overall smooth sound. I discovered them a while back, via their song "Hope Now" from their debut record, but now, they return to the scene with Stories. Not to say this album didn't come easy, as the band suffered their tour bus catching on fire and them losing everything earlier this year while on tour.

The band's newest single and opening track "Fight Another Day" has already gained a lot of attention, which is backed by it's catchy high energy and pop sound that is very reminiscent of Britt Nicole. A track that I personally find very interesting is "This Little Light of Mine." Song title sound familiar? Well it's chorus is in fact the children's worship song, but to a slower pace, with other verses as well. "Won't Let Me Go" somewhat resembles Addison Road's former hit "Sticking With You," but with a small bit less energy. Ending is "My Story," which seems to act as the title track. Influences of electronic pop are accompanied with the band's fun sound, seeming to get the message across. With God in our life story, nothing is impossible.

Rating: 7/10 Stories from Addison Road has potential to be one of the best albums of the CCM scene for this year and is obvious with the band's high energy pop songs, filled with a message that we should live for God, adding Him to our everyday stories. Good concept if you ask me.
